Manage Dragon Encounters

First of all I have to say that the idea is not mine, but Domcoppinger’s. I have used his mods “More Dragons”, “Even More Dragons” and “Most Dragons” for a while, but after some time I found myself quiting Skyrim, deactivating the mod or activating another, and starting Skyrim again, everytime I went into or out of a town or village.

There had to be an easier way. This mod works in a similar way as Domcoppinger’s mods, but switching can be done ingame through the use of a spell to which a script is attached. After casting the spell you are presented with a menu from which you can select one of six different timings of dragon encounters: Most, More, Many, Default, Less, Least. Most, More and Many are similar to Domcoppinger’s mods Most Dragons, Even More Dragons and More Dragons respecitively. Default is the same as Skyrim’s default time between encounters. I have added Less and Least in case you want to have the least chance of being disturbed by dragon attacks during an important mission. Most important however is the possibility to change the setting ingame.

The spell tome for the spell can be found under the table in the ruined house in between Fort Greymoor and the Western Watchtower.

Be careful using the More and Most settings, at least inside villages and towns, as there may appear two or maybe even three dragons at the same time. If you’re in bad luck they may annihilate an entire village.

I just want to say thank you so much for this mod. I recently ran into an irritating glitch which spawned dragons endlessly in Riften (Literally, one after the other, and it really messed up all my quests in that area) and since installing this, I haven't had one attack Riften as of yet!

I've entered Riften, Windhelm, and even WHiterun while using this mod and have yet to encounter a single one. I've passed 9 in-game days so far and still nothing. I already completed the main quests so I'm not sure what else could be causing it. :/

Oh ... and even using the Dragonrend shout, doesn't seem to help sometimes.

Psykotik, it's a difficult one! It works, but seems quite random, and you should be very careful. Sometimes you may see one, two or even three dragons "hanging around" and fly away when you get close to them. If you have set it to Most, you may be encountering one or more dragons attacking a village when you enter that village. My mod only changes a variable in the game, that is used by the game, probably Skyrim.exe. I can't change anything in the executable, so I thing it's part of the radiant AI of the dragons. The island should not have any influence on dragon encounters!

Altbert, the mod doesn't seem to work for me. I set it to "Most" and haven't seen any ever since. But before I did set it, I saw like 2 dragons hanging around the field where your island was..

P.S. Don't have any similar mods either..

this made me think "is there an imagine dragons song called encounters" but yet im a linkin park guy so lolz

Killed a lot of dragons lately? Maybe it has to with respawn time, normally 30 ingame days.

I've completed the entire maingame storyline, Factions and Dawnguard

Haven't progressed further than bringing followers to Delphine though. Kinda forgot about her

Which of the quests in the main questline did you complete? In vanilla Skyrim dragons appear after you have defeated Mirmulnir and Sahloknir, the last one to prove to Delphine that you are Dragonborn.

Don't know why, but the spell doesn't seem to work for me. The managedragonencounters.bsa file is in my Data and I have no other dragon spawn mods that could conflict with this one at all. Any tips? :o
